SALT LAKE CITY | Various Developments

Since things are a little slow right now, I thought I'd make a thread for some of the more interesting low-rise projects in Salt Lake City. Enjoy!

Greek Town Development (Proposed recently)
https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/02/...w-development/
Quote:
Documents soon to be submitted to City Hall envision creating an upscale campus around the 95-year-old cathedral at 279 S. 300 West, with elevated green plazas and public walkways, and an expanded cultural center for congregants of the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake.

The church’s yearly Greek Festival would get a larger and better-equipped home within the complex, capable of hosting more visitors.



The Exchange (Under construction)
Quote:
The Exchange incorporates many successful aspects of our past developments, including a residential community of over 400 mixed-income apartments, extensive street-front retail, and an energy-efficient, transit-oriented design capable of supporting a wide range of residents and businesses. Approximately 50% of residences will be affordable to households ranging from 40%-80% of the area median income. All these features were heavily desired by Salt Lake City’s government to address affordability concerns and nurture entrepreneurial growth.

Granary District (in design)
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/ind...-opening-soon/
Quote:
The Granary District, bounded by 600 South to 900 South freeway on-ramp and 300 West to Interstate 15, was once the main site of flour production for the Salt Lake Valley. The neighborhood’s proximity to downtown and abundance of large warehouses has attracted entrepreneurs, artists and artisans who see the warehouses as blank slates for their businesses and creative enterprises.
Quote:
I've been holding off for years on showing this stuff, but here is just a glimpse of some of the stuff we've envisioned for the Granary, where a true mix of tech office/research/retail & other urban amenities/ and a variety of housing exist all together to create a very pedestrian friendly and inviting urban experience.



Union Pacific Hotel (proposed)
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/his...-luxury-hotel/
Quote:
As currently proposed, the project will include the renovation of the Union Pacific Depot and eight floors of new construction directly west of the Depot. The project will add around 225 guest rooms, 26 suites, a coffee shop and over 6,700 square feet of restaurant space to The Gateway.




255 S. State (Construction starting soon)
https://www.buildingsaltlake.com/aff...alt-lake-city/
Quote:
Instead of proposing a single building of large scale, Brinshore’s architect, KTGY, has designed two structures. The south building will be eight floors containing 73 units and the north structure will rise to 13 stories with 117 units. 152 of the 190 total units will be affordable, ranging from 20%-80% of AMI, with 38 units at market rate. The mix will be 122 one-bedroom, 52 two-bedroom, 13 three- and four-bedroom, with three at-grade artist live-work spaces.

On street level, the project will offer 23,000 sq. ft. of commercial space (down from 40,000 in previous plans), some of which will be dedicated to community and education purposes. The developer plans to build one level of below-grade parking, offering 100 stalls. Eighteen surface parking spaces will be reserved for retail clients.

Some new beautiful new renderings of the Post District development surfaced today!

Gale Street Apartments (proposed)
https://www.mve-architects.com/proje...et-apartments/
Quote:
5 buildings | 580 units | 461,921 sf residential | 26,833 sf retail

This mixed-use project consists of five buildings with 580-units and 26,833 sf of retail within Type IIIA over Type IA construction. Located in the D-2 downtown area of Salt Lake City, this project will be a catalyst for fostering the development of a sustainable urban neighborhood. The five buildings of new construction are sited to retain existing adaptive-reuse structures to create the “complete block” of old and new. The design promotes a pedestrian-oriented development with a strong emphasis on scale in an urban context.

I'm lovin the design styles of the upcoming Post District. I hope the COVID doesn't cause a drastic long term delay in its development.

I like the mix of designs as well. The different styles compliment each other nicely and seem to have quality facade materials.

More info on the Fleet Blocks/Granary District:
https://www.ankrommoisan.com/project...-place-at-huma
Quote:
The Fleet Block is part of an underused warehouse district that will, with intelligent urban planning, become a vibrant community and research hub. The site is 120 acres southwest of downtown Salt Lake City. Owned by the city and previously used for fleet storage and maintenance, it is well-served by alternative transportation, including an adjacent light rail station and a proposed streetcar loop.

The team will employ creative adaptive-reuse strategies: the Silo Towers will be convereted into a landmark with signage; Restaurant Row will incorporate historic brick buildings; and the existing rail line will become a pedestrian/bike path connecting Restaurant Row and Fleet Block Area to the ballpark stadium one mile east.

The Fleet Block Redevelopment Framework will serve as a guide as this area grows into a pedestrian-friendly, human-scaled, mixed-use neighborhood. A broad range of housing types, from live-work studios to family-oriented townhomes, will create the density needed to support complementary desired amenities and services, and provide a workforce for tech, medical, educational, and creative industry tenants.

Project goals will align with the new Delos WELL Building Standard, which places health and wellness at the center of design and construction decisions. Fleet Block development goals for the project include creating a dynamic business and research community, with multi-use conference/innovation center, and weaving that into a lively retail destination. These uses would take full advantage of the Fleet Block’s proximity to the airport, University of Utah, and Research Park.

Potential silver lining of pandemic for the new SLC airport:
Pandemic could shorten Salt Lake airport rebuild by 2 years, save $300M
https://www.deseret.com/utah/2020/5/...-save-millions
Quote:
Bill Wyatt, the airport’s executive director, recently laid out the plan for Salt Lake City’s Airport Advisory Board, explaining how the airport would complete its multiyear redevelopment in the same size and scope, “except it will be two years faster and up to $300 million cheaper.”

To maximize available gates, airport officials had originally planned to demolish the airport’s old terminals and concourses in a phased manner, after the new airport’s first concourses open to the public, slated for Sept. 15. Now, because of less demand, Wyatt said they’ll be able to demolish all of the airport’s old facilities faster.

“What we’re proposing to do, instead of keeping old Concourse B and old Concourse C open (during construction), is tear down the existing airport facilities after the new SLC phase one is open,” Wyatt told the advisory board. “Tear them all down at once.”

“What that means is we won’t actually have to use any parts of the old airport after October of this year,” Wyatt told the Deseret News. “And so we can tear it all down, and it won’t be in our way as we do the second phase of the airport.”

Now, Wyatt said the entire airport project’s completion is slated for December of 2024, rather than early 2027.

This map shows the scale of development happening in SLC right now. This is just one corner of the city, west of downtown:

If I choose to take the time, I may add details and photos for each of the projects, but I thought I'd post the map for now.



I may have missed something here or there, but I am hoping this acts as a good snapshot of what is happening on the west side.
We have a long way to go in terms of infill but things are moving fast!
